Christmas Festivities. Christmas was
almost universally observed in this city,

- from on 'Tuesday last The display of

exceedingly linewe are in

inb could not gaincadmittance It
have beenuly a pleasing sight to
notice the wishful and bright countenances
of the little boys and girls, as with anxi
ous hearts thev listened lor the calling of
their names. As before stated many were
unable to gain admittance, we were among
that number, vet we can imagine the ex
pressiviiess of the scene, and fancy the old
i song :
C " Come, come, come oh, do be quick
Minutes are hours, you know,
j Thechitdreu are waiting, good St. Nick;
i Then why art thou so slow ?'
: Oh come, Kris Kringle,
jf. With a jingle, jingle,
; ' While the moon shines bright and clear ;
I "With a tingle, tingle, tingle,
And a dingle, dinglt, dingle,
To join iu ourfestal cheer."
None were forgotten, as three trees were
pjl pared laden with gifts. St. Paul church
- was well decorated with evergreens. On
; Christmas Eve lie v. Mr. Selhvood dis
i coursed to a large congregation, and on
; Christmas day services were held in the
- various churches. In the evening a large
party assembled at the Cliff House, where
' Messrs. White it fihoades had prepared
: Kiimntuously for their entertainment in
festive hall. Mus, dancing, and supper
were enjoyed heartily, until the small
hours of the morning when the Christ
: mas festivities of 18GS in Oregon City,
broke amid the happy hopes of smiling
f, people. The party of the opening of the

was supposed, found events settled, in a
manner to virtually decide the destiny of
th' hemispheres. The bells which chimed
the happy tidings from one extreme of the
continent to the other, recalling the vet

families was still heard. Smiling harvests
have taken the place of horrid war's grim

extend the usual congratulations to our

that upon those two pages was recorded

Throughout this Coast a great deal of suf-

Weeks and even months of protracted -and
aggravated misery is endured by the victims
of medical inefficiency and ignorance, which
could be cured just as speedily as was Mr.

and is only the echo of hundreds of other

Dr. Bourne: Last Winter 1 was nearly
dead, bv an actack of inflammatory rheuma
tism. "I suffered the most excruciating
pains for about five weeks, without anv hope
of relief, when a friend hearing of my illness,
called to see me, and assured me that if I
would stop "drugging and dosing' and go
to vou, that you would have me walking
about the streets i n three days. Sure enough,
although I was utterly helpless, and con
veyed to vour house in a carriage, and car-,
rie'd into "it by three stout men, and by them
lifted into the bath, yet, on coming out of it,
I largely assisted myself, doing much to
wards dressing, and", without assistance,,
walked from the bath to the carriage. On
the fourth dav I discharged my carriage and
walked, with a friend's aid, the entire dis
tance to your house (nearly a mile) and
home again, and so on until cured. I felt
myself a well man. And now I am happy
to do you this litile service, of publicly cer
tifying to the simple truth, leaving it to do

ances as may chance to sec this.

No. 10. Masonic TetnTde, Post street.
q Sacramento, April GO, 1S65.
Dr.. G. m. Bourne Dear Sir : D- is with
pleasure and satisfaction that I now let you
know of my good health. Looking back;
upoii what 1 have passed through, it seems
as if I had been lif ted from the grave, and I
think it my duty to acknowledge to you and
the world the benefit iGderived froji water
treatment as administered by you in your
celebrated baths. It was in" August 1864,
when disease developed itself with a severe,
cough? I then took medicines, getting
worse with chills, fevers, loss of strength,
and wa3) pronounced consumptive. This
set me to thinkjuggand finally 1 determined
to leave my business and go to the Sandwich 0
Islands, having been informed that I could
not be cured here. I went to San Francisco,
and while waiting for a shipilled upon Or.
Bourne, who stated that a trip-to the Islands
would probably result disastrously, was
wholly unnecessary, as I could be speedily
cured at his establishment. I placed myself
nnder his treatment, jind in one week was
so much improved I thought I could risk re
turning hyme and do my duty as Engineer
on the Central Pacific Railroad. The Doc
tor objected, but I thou git t 1 knew better,
and returned to duty) In about two weeks
my cough returned, and I kept getting
worse, and contrary to Dr. Ronnie's injtinc
tion never to take medicine again, committed
that folly, and soon was so completely run
down that! could scarcelv walk; so, as a
lasrresort, I concluded
once E;ceto try th
San Francisco few
Water Cure. 1 went to
of my friends expecting me to return; in
factrl thought my return doubtful. On ar
riving at Dr. Bourne's establishment (Feb.
14, lbt5) I wj.s not able to get into the bath
without assistance, but in a tew days I began
to recover myself again. I remained with
him only six weeks, when I felt a "wiser
and better irtah," without the aid of medi
cine. I have how been at work several
weeks, and find that I am gainiifg) every day
and at present bid fair to be stouter than
ever betore. t'ersons visiting tne woctor's
establishmenWind it just what if) should be,
both)in the Ladies' and Gentlemen's Depart
ments, and I cannot say too mnoti in praiso
of ibe Doctor's kind attentions to his pa
tients. This letter I wnte for the benefit of all tho.
afflicted, to be used as the Doctor decides,
and should it be the means of directing any
to his care aud treatment who (as they as
suredly will) find relief, I will txr-pafd for
my trouble. J A M ES CAM PirELL,
Eugiucer Central Pacific Railroad:
Sax Francisco, Aug. 22, 1665.
Advised, by the undersigned, Mr. James
Campbell, of the Central Pacific Railroad,
(who was then in a most) deplorable state of
ill health) placed himself under the care of
Dr. Bourne, the Water Cure Physician.
Some six months afterward he visitedHhc
city, when I accidentally met hiiix at Dr.
Bourne's establishment, and am happy to
say, restored to the enjoyment ot good
health, and in finespints.
Cj5F Br. Bourne treats all diseases of the
throat, chest and lungs which includes dip
theria, hrtmcbitis, incipient consumption
pleurisy, croup, etc., with great success..
Great relief is afforded in advanced stages of
consumption. Rheumatism, paralysis, neu-
ralgia, fever and ague, droDsv, etc , fete, arc-
also cured quickly, pleasantly and
ically. No medicine whatever.
Dr. Bourne takes the liberty to publrsh thfe
above as many persons had prophesied his
relapse into his former condition, on return
ing to his duties, of the writer of an "Inter
esting Letter," whose statements concerning.
the cure of a well defined case of consump
tion have reeentlv attracted so much atten
tion to the Water Cure, as improved upon
and practised by Dr. Borirne This ddi-.
tional testimony must prove satisfactory V
all reasonable minds. It should be remem
bered that Dr. Bourne uses no Eiedicines
whatever, and that his patients almst vipi
versally are those who failed to receive re
lief from the medical practitioners; yet tbey
are cured with great rapidity, and in'a pleas
ant and agreeable manner. " No. 10, Maonio
